Green Bond Framework

As a Responsible Company, QuadReal strives to mitigate its impact on the environment while also providing industry-leading returns for stakeholders.

Through our Green Bond Framework, we align these two commitments, providing investors with an opportunity to support our innovative solutions that reduce energy consumption, carbon emissions, pollution and waste.

The framework complements our commitment to global ESG benchmarks, and will help us advance our goal of decarbonizing QuadReal’s entire portfolio by 2050.

QuadReal’s Green Bond Framework paves the way for investors to be a part of our sustainability focus, reflecting our vision for sustainable finance and community-building.

As a key pillar of our borrowing program, the Green Bond Framework leverages our ESG track record, aligning with Sustainalytics—a global leader in ESG—and the International Capital Market Association Green Bond Principles.

Through BCI QuadReal Realty (BQR), we have issued nearly $1.2 billion in green bonds since establishing the Green Bond Framework in 2020, making QuadReal one of the largest real estate green bond issuers in Canada.

Under the framework, we fully allocate net proceeds to eligible categories in QuadReal green projects such as The Post and Oakridge Park, and we look forward to supporting more great projects in the years ahead.
